HARPSICHORD With its full sound, charismatic and distinctive timbre the Harpsichord has been a backbone of many composers’ works ever since the Baroque era, spanning all the way up to the modern cinematic music. Driven by the desire to capture every single tone color of this amazing instrument in detail, we embarked on the journey of recording and creating an easily playable instrument, while still preserving its character and its unique “voice”. The harpsichord was meticulously tuned and prepared by our engineers in order to give out a clear, even tone for all registers. The instrument consists of three registers, or in other words – 3 different sets of strings recorded here – two at 8 feet long and one at 4 feet long that sound an octave above the others. We’ve also captured the “buff”, also known as lute stop: soft leather pressed against the strings, for a slightly more muted tone.
